Turmberg über Burgstraße und Touristenweg nach Berghausen - mit Einkehr und Spaß
Scout Jens went for a hike.

When processing the data in OSM near Karlsruhe, questions arose that could not be clarified by aerial photographs.So I'm off to see if the path goes on or not. I passed the Schützenhaus beer garden, where I had to take a spontaneous break. Simply because it works again and there was exactly one table free.When I arrived at my destination, I saw that the path didn't go any further and even ended earlier. What's more, I landed on private property and the owner had just come back and didn't think it was funny. After a long conversation in which the words complaint, personal details and police came up, I finally gained the owner's trust. As promised, I will now 1) shorten the way, 2) draw the gate and 3) mark the part as private (as it is in reality). Then the poor man may have fewer "visitors" in the future.After this exciting part of my exploration, I continued via the Rittnertgarten. There I met the man again (!). But a few conciliatory words and the offer to delete the photos let me escape once more ...A few photos follow for changes in the menu and then I had to stop again at Weinhof Rupp. Exactly: Because it is possible and exactly one table was free :-)The further way led me to more detailed ways to be explored, whereby I am enthusiastic about the new discoveries. Great paths and meadow paths!At nightfall I grabbed an S-Bahn and went home again. As always, I'm glad I went. It was great!
Incidentally, the path through the vineyard on the Turmberg is closed. You have to climb over the site fence. This is definitely not for everyone. Just for information ;-)I have now transferred the rest of the explorations back to OSM. For a better card and because I enjoy it.
And again a little service to mankind ;-) You can understand the owner's grant if you sometimes observe how little attention is given to some contemporaries. I find the renovation of the vineyard walls interesting.

Hi Jens, I think it's great that you do that with OSM. The same thing happened to me about my private life. But I met a much nicer owner. But, if you already know it while planning, all the better! 👍
The vineyard walls belong to the state winery. So state property also has something good 😉And thank you both for the recognition on OSM. That’s even more fun 😊
Durlach and the Turmberg always spoke to me when I was in "Karlsruhe" - but so far it has never happened. When I look at your pictures like that I should maybe tackle it. "Weinhof" alone sounds like an argument for it 😁
Dear migratory fish: The area is wonderful. Partly totally quiet and the Weinhof is a nice stop with a breathtaking view!A disaster to represent in OSM: orchards, fields, meadows, gardens, bushes, wooded areas. Everything mixed. I suspect the Badische inheritance as one of the reasons. But that's what defines the area.

Kudos from me for your efforts to provide accurate OSM maps. When it comes to private properties, which I often come across on my tours, I would sometimes wish that I had precise cadastral map material with me on my navigation system. It seems to me that some landowners in rural areas also incorporate one or the other boundary area on which there was previously a small trail. Even with signs up, I would always wish that the sign clearly shows who put it up. E.g. the sign on the S0 route just before the private property doesn't seem to be an official nature conservation sign, does it? There you can also go down to Blankenloch. On our border tour around Karlsruhe, we noticed that the border between Karlsruhe and Stutensee basically goes as a line from the Rittnerhof along the edge of the Grötzinger Friedhof and from there up to the Fraunhofer Institute on the other side. If you want to hike or drive close to this border, you will be faced with some of such private property issues.
Thanks Clemens! And you're right: it's not that straightforward sometimes. There are no signs, owners claim land without a handler, conservationists want to direct the flow of people ...I map as it is clearly proven. That alone should help - together with the correction of routes (new, abandoned, different nature, secured access restrictions). I am always happy when Komoot has updated again and another piece of the world is correctly represented. :-)
Hello Jens, I could recommend Croatia as an OSM playground ... some things seemed out of place, not recorded, to be precise ... first I really realized how much work the OSM scouters put into it 👍🏻 and thank you very much.

Thank you scaurum. And Croatia is certainly a worthwhile destination in many ways 😉
